In this Article i am trying to explain how we can achieve paging in MVC applications.
 
Step 1: First of all we will create a new MVC project.

Step 2: Now we'll create a table.

Step 3: Now we'll add Entity Framework in the Current Project.

Step 4 Now we will add new View for Customer.

Step 5: We have added view for Customer now we will create Controller .

public class CustomerController : Controller
{
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            var context = new CompayEntities();
            var listCustomer = context.Customers.ToList();
            return View(listCustomer);
        }
}

Step 6: Now we run our application and see the output.

In the above image paging is not show because by default MVC is not giving us this feature.

Step 7: Now we go Nuget.org and find "PagedList". we'll get below result.

Now we will add the above library in our project.

Step 8:  Now will wirte for pagination.

Add PagedList inside the Customer Controller.

public ActionResult Index(int? page)
 {
            var context = new CompayEntities();
            var listCustomer = context.Customers.ToList();
            int pageSize = 3;
            int pageNumber = (page ?? 1);
            
            return View(listCustomer.ToPagedList(pageNumber, pageSize));
 }

Now we need to change in the View Page

@model PagedList.IPagedList<PagingListSample.Customer>

Now we'll add pagination template.

<div>
    Page @(Model.PageCount < Model.PageNumber ? 0 : Model.PageNumber)
    of @Model.PageCount
     
    @if (Model.HasPreviousPage)
    {
        @Html.ActionLink("<<", "Index", new { page = 1, sortOrder = ViewBag.CurrentSort, currentFilter=ViewBag.CurrentFilter  })
        @Html.Raw(" ");
        @Html.ActionLink("< Prev", "Index", new { page = Model.PageNumber - 1, sortOrder = ViewBag.CurrentSort, currentFilter=ViewBag.CurrentFilter  })
    }
    else
    {
        @:<<
        @Html.Raw(" ");
        @:< Prev
    }
     
    @if (Model.HasNextPage)
    {
        @Html.ActionLink("Next >", "Index", new { page = Model.PageNumber + 1, sortOrder = ViewBag.CurrentSort, currentFilter=ViewBag.CurrentFilter  })
        @Html.Raw(" ");
        @Html.ActionLink(">>", "Index", new { page = Model.PageCount, sortOrder = ViewBag.CurrentSort, currentFilter=ViewBag.CurrentFilter  })
    }
    else
    {
        @:Next >
        @Html.Raw(" ")
        @:>>
    }
</div>

Step 9: We see the output.
